Crack Cocaine Dependency
Ordinary Cocaine is far less addictive and strong than crack Cocaine. Getting hooked on crack is faster and has a stronger hold. Addicts need a bigger dose of the substance to keep the high they feel that is so enjoyable, but also very short. With every passing day, the addicts need crack just to stay normal and that means that dependency has evolved.
Withdrawal symptoms are more likely to be exhibited by newly addicted crack smokers when attempting to stop its use. The brain eventually loses its ability to naturally produce dopamine (a chemical the brain produces to make a person feel happy) because it will rely on the crack to force-release excess amounts of dopamine.
It is very hard to stop using crack because it creates extreme cravings, as well as undesirable withdrawal side effects that users want to avoid. A crack Cocaine dependent is predisposed to overlook the bad consequences of substance abuse.
